The park is the first to get new refurbished under the program which aims to improve access to the game.

Better scoreboards, fields and dugouts will come to parks around metro Atlanta.

“This is a very special park project, as it is our very first Braves Park Project together with Truist,” remarked Danielle Bedasse, Executive Director of the Atlanta Braves Foundation and Director of Community Affairs at the Atlanta Braves. “It is really important to create more safe, equitable, fun, sustainable places to play, learn and grow; and that is exactly what this is meant to be.”


Following the ceremony, two youth baseball teams faced off to showcase the new equipment and field improvements.
